He and his cohorts are still wedded to the idea that the public sector is the only proper driver of the economy, and the private sector is there only to provide the millions of public sector workers with a living. He claims he wants jobs and growth. And where the hell does he think that these jobs are going to come from?
What he doesn't seem to get, is that if we do not make the cuts, then there will be no economy to support any public sector, thus no jobs, no growth and so on.
